Floyd Mayweather Jr. is making more moves days after announcing a rematch with Manny Pacquiao.

“Before the Mayweather-Pacquiao rematch I will be back in Tokyo for a huge boxing event. Stay tuned,” Mayweather said in a video posted to TMZ late Wednesday morning.

TMZ reports he’ll compete in a tune-up fight and Mayweather is looking at possibly two of them before taking on Pacquiao. The site reported he’s not only considering a fight against a boxer, but potentially a kickboxer or MMA fighter.

Mayweather, 41, won his 50th fight last year against UFC star Conor McGregor in the 10th round. He came out of retirement to reach the 50-0 mark. Reports are that Mayweather’s rematch with Pacquiao could be in December of this year.
